SITE is a collection of low, large-scale tables, modular benches, and a highly configurable storage system designed to create immersive spaces for collaboration in applications ranging from conference rooms to large public spaces.

As the trend continues towards distributed project teams, we believe the centralized workplace will be most effective and relevant in how it facilitates the rich collaborative interactions so essential to project work. As the use of large-scaled plasma screens becomes more common in the workplace, SITE plays a critical role in connecting individuals; either face-to-face or at a distance via web conferencing.

SITE effectively leverages real estate by activating under-utilized "in between" spaces (i.e.: lobbies, concourse, open areas, etc.). When configured for large-scale applications, SITE's inherent flexibility is reflected in how it easily serves large and small groups, as well as individuals based upon the way users orient themselves within the setting.

Each element in the SITE collection is designed to be repurpose-able and reconfigurable. Every component retains its inherent value as a standalone product. However, when utilized in concert, the thoughtful and fluid design creates highly effective and inspired settings in which to gather and work.
